You may be thinking that the world doesn’t need another applecrumblerecipe but here’s where I share one that’s a tad different and super yummy – this fruit crumble will knock your socks off whilst still keeping its firm place with being one of the ultimate comfort food desserts
We had a collection of blackberries hanging around after the kids went foraging and I was going to make a standard crumble but then thought a nice apple and blackberry loaf topped with a crunchy crumble would go down a treat
I did a bit of a double take when I was flicking through my Food Glorious Food recipe book and I saw a recipe for Aunt Freda's Maunsel Pudding which is basically applecrumble with a chopped up Mars Bar in it
Now, this recipe is perhaps a bit more faff than a standard crumblerecipe. Despite my mum regularly making crumbles throughout my childhood, it’s only in the last couple of years that I’ve accepted anything other than a bowl of custard (yep, on it’s own)
Full of autumnal flavours this is perfect as the weather turns colder, I’ve bought the flavours and textures of a classic applecrumble and mixed them with an utterly amazing cheesecake…and boy does it work
My healthy banana and oatmeal cookies are still a work in progress (watch this space) but I created this incredibly simple, healthy applecrumblerecipe today as a follow up for Sunday lunch with the family
